Perky paneer cutlets with an indulgent dry fruit centre, are a real melt-in-the-mouth treat. When topped with a mixture of green peas with other flavourful ingredients, laced with sauces, and garnished with sev, these cutlets transform into an exciting Paneer and Peas Chaat, which will make a great starter at a party, or a special treat for tea-time! You can prepare the required ingredients earlier, but assemble the chaat just before serving. Preferably, make the cutlets also just before serving, so they will be crisp. This chaat is also a filling after school snack, along with a glass of Chocolaty Milkshake .
